Lehigh and Lafayette talk hoops at annual media day

The Lafayette men have earned the #2 pick in the Patriot League's Preseason basketball poll while Lehigh is 6th. The poll was announced at the league's media day event Thursday.

The college basketball season is just around the corner, and in the Patriot League the landscape is a bit different this year. Lehigh graduated several good players, so did Bucknell, so the league race is a bit more wide open. Lehigh is picked 6th this year in the preseason poll, Lafayette with several players back is picked second. But both are behind league newcomer Boston University who earned the nod as the preseason favorite. That doesn't mean they won't challenge for the title, Lehigh and Lafayette players know the title isn't won in the preseason poll.
